The Japanese provoke strong reactions. We admire their industrial skill, we envy their commercial success. But
some of us remember the Burma Campaign; others simply feel suspicious of ‘oriental cunning' of strange minds
and strange ways of doing things.
What happens then when a Japanese firm sets up a factory in Britain with Japanese bosses and a British
workforce? Do the Japanese find our workers lazy and inefficient? Can they adjust and how in fact, does a group
of English natives react to the Japanese way of doing things?

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed
in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC
programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.
We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC
programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement
with the BBC.
Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search
function to find
thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available
to view or listen to on the BBC website, and programmes to
purchase from BBC Store and other providers.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
